joanna garcia nick swisher baby girl gi JoAnna Garcia and Nick Swisher welcome a baby girl

After announcing her pregnancy in November, JoAnna Garcia Swisher has given birth to her first child with husband Nick Swisher. The “Animal Practice” star and her baseball player hubby have been married since Dec. 11, 2010.

The Associated Press reports that the Swishers have welcomed a baby girl into their family. The Cleveland Indians have placed Swisher on paternity leave for one to three days to spend time with his child. This is Swisher’s first season with the Indians.

“I am so excited. I never in a million years thought I’d have a little girl, but over the last six months, the pink and purple dresses that I’ve bought, I’m telling you.” Swisher told Yahoo’s Ben Lyons prior to the birth. “My wife, Jo, she says, ‘You’re going to spoil that little girl so much.’ I can’t wait, man. I talk to her every night. Jo and I, we’re so excited to meet her and to bring her in the world and give her a whole lot of love.”
